Peripheral Bypass Surgery

Peripheral Bypass Surgery is a procedure that uses a graft to reroute blood around a blockage in a peripheral artery. Atherosclerotic plaques can reduce blood flow to the limbs and other parts of the body. Plaques can also rupture, causing a blood clot to form and completely block the artery at the rupture site. This graft bypasses the narrowed or blocked areas restoring blood flow. Synthetic, arterial or venous grafts can be used in this procedure.
